This is a replica of a thread I posted over in TPA - hopefully, it won't be considered too "political" to remove from here - but rhere's a real crisis in terms of abandoned animals in the metro New Orleans area. We just adopted an abandoned puppy from New Orleans, just about an hour ago. There are thousands of pets, that need your help. Please, adopt one of them if you can. Please check this out, and adopt a pet if you can: The web site is http://nsalamerica.org They'll fly them out to you, if you pay for air freight. It's not much, maybe a hundred bucks or so. Please, pretty please, help these kids. The NOAA just rescued about twenty dolphins, and they're putting them up in a Holiday Inn in the 9th ward. But you and I, can take care of some of the puppies and kittens that don't have homes anymore. Please, check this web site, and do everything you can to help. I guarantee, that you won't be disappointed.
